A small grants fund has been set up to support organisations to participate in this year's To Absent Friends which runs 1-7 November 2019.
We are particularly keen to support small organisations to undertake activities within their community to provide public opportunities for storytelling and/or remembrance of people who have died.
The range of ways in which organisations can participate is wide and varied.
In previous years, events have included concerts, poetry nights, craft activities, memory sharing events, storytelling suppers, exhibitions and much more.
Some ideas of relevant activities members might wish to undertake are listed on the To Absent Friends website, but we also encourage creative and innovative ideas that are appropriate to local groups and communities.
Grants are available for up to £250.
The deadline for receipt of completed applications is Friday 23 August 2019. (We will aim to inform applicants of whether or not they have been successful by the end of August.)
A short grant application form and guidance notes for applicants are provided below.
